Maryland Republicns will get a fundraising boost from Sen. Rand Paul tonight.
Paul -- a Kentucky Republican often touted as a potential presidential candidate -- will speak to supporters at a fundraiser in Silver Spring. Individual tickets begin at $40 and sponsor-level tickets run as high as $2,000.
Paul appeared earlier this year in Linthicum for a fundraiser organized by the Maryland Liberty Political Action Committee.
"If we want to win again, if we want to be a bigger party, we have to go to different people with a message of hope and optimism," he said at the time.
The fundraiser will also include Daniel Bongino, a former Secret Service agent and frequent guest host on conservative radio, who is running an uphill race to succeed Rep. John Delaney, the Potomac Democrat who won the seat in 2012. The district was redrawn after the 2010 census to favor Democrats.
